The significance of anthropological involvement in applied areas of economics, development, business, and similar fields is discussed. Contributions from a group of anthropologists, sociologists and computer scientists towards developing a more formal approach to understanding culture and its component processes are presented. Culture as a systemic concept has rapidly become pervasive outside anthropology in many cognate social sciences and humanities subjects. It is found that a model of culture can be instantiated in an agent population to adaptively solve real world optimization problems.
